My Story

The chronicle of the journey from infertility, to miscarriage, to finally raising twin girls born in June 2012.

I haven't been doing pottery because I didn't feel like sitting all crunched up in the stomach and because I thought watching the wheel spin might make me sick.

But now I've got a hankering and I want to get back into the studio.  I think I've squeezed about as much fun out of the internet as I can during this time of laziness and I'm ready to DO something again.

So I sent out a message to a pottery mailing list asking for comfort advice and seeing if there were precautions I should take that I hadn't thought about.  Well, about half of the respondents advised that I simply take a break until after the babies are born.


But don't wannnnnaaaaaaaa!!!!!

I've got my big doctors appointment tomorrow so I'll check with him and see what he advises.  But I'm gonna be a real unhappy camper if I can't engage in my one major hobby for the next year or two.

So I'll just reminisce for the moment.  Plug my other blog and my shop just in case you want to see what I'm usually doing when I'm not cooking up little ones.

  1. I love the colors on the blue mug. My personal opinion on the pottery. As long as there's nothing toxic in it... lead, asbestos, broken razor blades. Then my opinion is you should be okay. The general rule of "If it hurts, don't do it" got me thru my 2nd pregnancy pretty well. Checking with your Doctor is a good thing. My 2 cents. YMMV


Please share your thoughts! It makes me feel like I have friends.
